Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: 56 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Safety and tolerability were measured with respect to:

    1. Safety measurements
    2. Local tolerability at the site of intradermal injection
    3. Incidence of adverse events.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Administration Site Reactions [ Time Frame: Day -3 to Day 56 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Local skin reactions are viewed as a normal and predicted reaction to exposure to a preparation of mycobacterial antigens. All patients experienced administration site reactions and all reactions were examined and characterised. However only those reported as adverse events are presented here.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: IMM-101

Patients received an intradermal injection of a single dose level of IMM 101 on three subsequent occasions. Doses of IMM 101 were administered over a 4 week period on days 0, 14 and 28. Doses used were:

'Heat killed whole cell M. obuense (IMM-101) 0.1 mg', 'Heat killed whole cell M. obuense (IMM-101) 0.5 mg', or 'Heat killed whole cell M. obuense (IMM-101) 1.0 mg'

Biological: Heat killed whole cell M. obuense (IMM-101) 0.1 mg

Each patient will receive an intradermal placebo injection of borate buffered saline solution (day -3) to provide an intra patient placebo control. Patients who were willing and able to proceed with the study will receive an intradermal injection of a single dose level of IMM 101 on three subsequent occasions. Doses of IMM 101 were administered over a 4 week period on days 0, 14 and 28.

Dose levels to be administered are 0.1 mg, 0.5 mg and 1.0 mg.

Other Names:
  • IMM-101
  • Mycobaterium obuense

Other Names:
  • IMM-101
  • Mycobaterium obuense

Detailed Description:

The proposed study is a first-in-man, placebo-controlled, dose escalation trial to evaluate the safety and tolerability of three different doses of IMM-101 administered intradermally to melanoma patients. Additionally, the study aims to characterize local responses to this vaccine in order to delineate unexpected / unacceptable local reactions from those indicative of appropriate immunological response in this patient group.
